  • Programs and Services ATLANTA SPEECH SCHOOL ANNUAL REPORT 2011 - 2012 2 SCHOOLS FORYOUNG CHILDREN Katherine Hamm Center is a listening, spoken language and literacy program for infants, toddlers and elementary-age children who are deaf or hard of hearing. Students use assisted listening devices such as cochlear implants and hearing aids. This program, designed to prepare children to succeed in mainstream classrooms as quickly as possible, enables students to communicate with spoken language rather than sign language. Anne & Jim Kenan Preschool serves children two to six years of age. Kenan’s academic curriculum focuses on language, literacy and learning, helping children become skilled communicators who are exceptionally prepared for school. Children participate in developmentally appropriate activities designed to cultivate social skills, enhance fine and gross motor skills, and encourage creative learning and cognitive development. Stepping Stones provides therapeutic education for children ages three to five with speech and/or language delays. The first of its kind in Georgia, the program incorporates a unique collaborative approach, integrating therapy and education to address the specific devel- opmental needs of each child. Its curriculum addresses speech, language, literacy, pre-academic and sensory integration needs. Wardlaw School serves elementary-age students with dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities. Educators use a collaborative teaching model to provide specialized instruction tailored to each student’s individual learning profile. This individualization enables students to develop effective learning strategies that will help them succeed in a mainstream classroom. CLINICAL AND COMMUNITY PROGRAMS Rollins Center for Language & Learning is a professional development program that uses research-based teaching strategies to train and coach teachers to help improve student achievement and teacher performance. The heaviest concentration of programming is directed toward training teachers with students from low income families who are at great risk for illiteracy and academic failure. Audiology Clinic offers hearing services to adults, children and infants. Audiologists specialize in diagnostic testing and evaluation of hearing loss and auditory processing disorders. The clinic also dispenses hearing aids for infants through adults. Speech-Language Clinic provides evaluation and therapy for children and adults with communication difficulties. Therapists in the clinic also perform speech-language and hearing screenings for independent schools in the metro-Atlanta area. Occupational Therapy Clinic serves children who experience difficulties with sensory integration, fine and gross motor coordination, visual-motor and handwriting skills, visual perception, independent self-care, and feeding skills. Experienced therapists guide children through developmentally appropriate activities that enable and challenge children to be more successful in their daily routines. Learning Evaluation Clinic provides psychoeducational evaluations for individuals from ages four to college-age. Our evaluation team consists of experienced diagnosticians with backgrounds in learning disabilities, reading, psychology, speech-language pathology and audiology difficulties. Learning Lab is an individual or small-group intervention program that serves persons needing assistance to achieve school success. The lab offers a wide range of research-based instructional methods, administered by highly trained, experienced teachers who specialize in many educational methods and curricula. After School and Summer Camp Programs operate as an extension of the school day and as a summer camp. The programs exist to develop the whole child through recreational activities and educational enrichment in a relaxed, fun environment. There is a wealth of experience in this building. We can collaborate within each discipline, across disciplines and across programs for the best possible outcome for each person.
